Today's photoshoot was super-fun. Feminine movements, tinkling of metal on my outfit, and simple joy. I owe it all to belly dance.
What is belly dance, you ask? It's expressive dance of innumerable variations. Both its moves and costumes vary from region to region. While some associate it with Middle Eastern cultures, belly dance is practiced around the world.
I stumbled upon a belly dance costume yesterday while perusing an Egyptian clothing store. I enjoy visiting stores of different cultures to see what they have to offer. Their wares are often stuff unavailable at suburban American malls.
This outfit was deeply discounted and... wait for it... purple! So it matches my blog. I took that as a sign from the universe that someone wants me to have this cute costume.
Wanna dance with me?
